Now in its 6th year, mendozabaseball.com is the most realistic franchise ownership simulation on the internet. We feature long-term contracts signed in an e-Bay style auction, a developmental list for stashing away prospects, and an economic structure that provides appropriate rewards to the George Steinbrenners, and Peter Angeloses, and Billy Beanes.
